      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

1. You could substitute a tin of kidney or black beans instead of having to pre-cook the black eyed peas (I buy beans in bulk, soak overnight and then do a massive cook up, when cooled add them to clip lock bags and freeze ready for quick and easy vegetarian dishes)

2. Instead of roasting your own capsicum you could buy roasted peppers from the deli or in a jar, whatever works for you.3. Serve it with traidional coconut & pea rice (google for method).
